Haven't smoked my pipes for quite a while and no nothing about the pipe tobacco available today. When I smoked a pipe I smoked a mixture called "Black Watch" which was a custom blend put up by the Votis Pipe Shop in Albany NY. This shop has of course been long out of business. Would anyone know anything about this mixture?
I asked my guy who knows everything about pipes and pipe tobacco and this is what he said:
I think that may be one of the Edward’s Pipe Shops custom blends and is predominately a burley based blend and most likely a mild American type aromatic. If a person is looking for it they would need to contact an Edwards Pipe Shop to get it.
Received a reply to an inquiry from Pipes and Cigars in Albany. The tobacconist (Russ) remembers it well and said the Black Watch blend was originally put up by Phillip Morse. He has tried to duplicate it in his "Old Tartan" blend.
